About Decaf Peru
In Specialty Coffee, using the word decaf solicits a myriad of responses, most of which are negative. The prevailing stereotype is that decaf coffees are flat, flavorless and unrepresentative of their original characteristics.
Our decaf coffees, however, are a different story. We use in-season, organic coffees that are decafeinated with the celebrated “Mountain Water Process” (MWP). Unlike many decafs on the market that employ chemicals in this process, MWP gently removes caffeine in a pure water solution that floats coffee oils to the surface (caffeine included), filters out the caffeine, and reintroduces the original oils to the green coffee. The result is a great coffee, no qualifiers.
We love keeping a single origin decaf coffee on our menu as the global harvests ebb and flow. It gives decaf lovers an opportunity to enjoy the nuances and unique flavor profiles of a given region. Our latest, fresh crop, single origin decaf is from the Norandino cooperative in Peru.
